Palladium 12 Celebrates 10th Anniversary

The Palladium 12 Theatre, a state-of-the-art movie complex located in the heart of downtown Birmingham, will cap off a several-month celebration of its 10th anniversary with a Family Fun Spectacular on Saturday, November 12, 2011. The event will feature promotions, games and activities for the whole family. The first 250 guests will receive free admission to a movie and refreshments.

"This is a great opportunity to thank the community for its support over the last 10 years," said Barb Zanetti, senior director of Uptown Entertainment, which operates the Palladium 12 along with the Birmingham 8 and the RenCen 4 Theaters. "Since May, we have been celebrating this milestone anniversary and the response has been phenomenal. From special $10 promotions to an Oscar Memories double feature to a Senior Luncheon & Movie event, customers have enthusiastically joined us in celebrating the 10th anniversary!"

The Family Fun Spectacular will be held at the Palladium 12, located at 250 N. Old Woodward Ave. in Birmingham. The fun-filled day of activities will include guest appearances by local celebrities, local pro sports mascots including PAWS, Roary and Hooper, and the special drawing of prizes from the Uptown Brings Hope Raffle that will benefit charity partner Grace Centers of Hope. Activities run from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. with the raffle drawing at 6 p.m.

The first 250 guests will receive a free movie admission to a movie of their choice for that day, as well as a pop, popcorn, hot dog and dessert. All other guests throughout the day can receive a movie ticket, pop and popcorn for $10.

The Palladium 12 opened 10 years ago on November 16, 2001 with the premiere of the first Harry Potter film. The stunning design and architecture of the theatre, coupled with premium amenities such as Sony Digital Cinema 4K technology, Tempur-Pedic® seating, RealD® 3-D technology, unique concessions items and on-site catering, have made the Palladium 12 a sought after entertainment destination for young and old alike.

"We are a proud member of the downtown Birmingham business community and pleased to bring movies, memories and magic to our guests," said Zanetti. "Birmingham has been a terrific place to do business and we are proud to be an active partner in the community. We look forward to continuing to offer the finest in high quality, first-run motion picture entertainment, as well as special alternative content such as simulcast concerts, operas and the Uptown Film Festival."
